How much alcohol is in those lens cleaners for your glasses?

Would they work to sanitize your phone?

1. I cleaned up my bathroom cabinet

And discovered two large bottles of spray eye glass cleaner. In addition to a glass cleaner, we're using it for phones, keyboards, etc.

I cannot vouch for the COVID-19-killing qualities, but it's amazing what you have right at your own grasp if you just take the time to look.

2. Have used them to clean the phone since starting to wear glasses, but

didn't start that with the idea of sanitizing. The brand I've got until the box wears out *DRIES* too fast to do much!1

3. When I clean my glasses I wipe the screen on my phone, as well. The label says water, isopropyl

alcohol and sodium laurate. I don't know if there is enough alcohol to disinfect, but it certainly dries fast.

4. I think any kind of sanitizer has to be 60% alcohol.

5. zI refilled mine with regular alcohol

When I found one and started using it, I realized it was mainly alcohol. When it was empty I refilled it with the ordinary alcohol I had in my medicine cabinet. Since it sprays a fine mist of alcohol I wet a paper towel and wipe down whatever I want to sanitize after I have washed it first with soap and water. I also spritz canned foods when I get them home from the grocery store. Good for door knobs, etc.
